🏚️Mark Twain House and Museum📖 .
"My goal today is not to mention "Mark Twain" even once, and to make sure you all know who I am talking about", - said the tour guide🧭. .
🚢In fact, we all learned at school that "Mark Twain" is Samuel Clemens' pseudonym. The pen name came from the time when Samuel spent years working on riverboats, where he met riverboat captain Isaiah Sellers, who, he claims, went by "Mark Twain." When the sailor passed away, young boy laid his hands upon it without asking a permission.🕊️
🏫Twain lived in his Hartford, Connecticut house from 1871-1894, and wrote some of his best-known works here, including The Adventures of Tom Sawyer, The Prince and the Pauper, Life on the Mississippi, Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, A Tramp Abroad, and A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court. .
It has now been renovated and serves as a museum📸.
Here's what you need to know:
.🗞️ Guided tours are $20/person. The tour is about 2-2.5 hours long, so eat something beforehand and change into comfortable footwear.
